1/4/12 - Come, and See

John 1: 35-42

John was standing with two of his disciples,
and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said,
"Behold, the Lamb of God."
The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus.
Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them,
"What are you looking for?"
They said to him, "Rabbi" (which translated means Teacher),
"where are you staying?"
He said to them, "Come, and you will see."
So they went and saw where he was staying,
and they stayed with him that day.
It was about four in the afternoon.
Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter,
was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus.
He first found his own brother Simon and told him,
"We have found the Messiah," which is translated Christ.
Then he brought him to Jesus.
Jesus looked at him and said,
"You are Simon the son of John;
you will be called Cephas," which is translated Peter.


"Come and see" .... what an invitation Christ gives to John and Peter. There's no way that they could have even begun to fathom what they actually WOULD see, and how their lives would change. No clue at all of what they were getting into. But they came.

It's the same way with us. Christ is continually calling us to Him. Come, and see. We have no clue how great it can be.

Happy New Year!
